Still time to enter:- 'Young Tradesperson of the Year 2017'

BUILDERS' merchant Jewson is calling on construction professionals from across Merseyside to submit their entries for its Young Tradesperson of the Year competition, 2017.  Following on from the successful launch in 2016, Jewson has recently announced the 2nd Young Tradesperson of the Year competition, that aims to showcase and celebrate the work of the building trade's freshest talent. New for 2017 is the introduction of 5 entry categories with a grand prize of VIP festival tickets, a holiday abroad and up to ?250 worth of building materials from Jewson. The prizes will be awarded to the entries that impress the judges most.

The competition is open to anyone 30 years of age and under in a skilled trade and working full or part time in the construction industry. It is also open to apprentices as well as those who have recently received their qualifications.

Entrants are required to demonstrate their levels of skill and professionalism by submitting examples of their work and answering a short series of questions via the Jewson website, by 24 February 2017.

  • Best Apprentice.

David Fenton, Marketing Director at Jewson, commented:- "We see 1st hand the great work that young people are doing in the construction industry across the UK and, following a successful competition last year, we want to recognise even more of the talent that's out there. The next generation of tradespeople will be responsible for building the Britain of the future and we want to ensure they have the support they need as they start their careers. Celebrating the best of their work will not only encourage them to keep working at perfecting their trade, but can also help more young people to consider a career in construction."

► Each shortlisted entrant will receive an invite to attend the official awards event with a friend, and will receive a Jewson goody bag on the night.
